Psychological Chillers by Women authors

Books with a dramatic chilling story focussed on peoples emotions, with flawed characters with twists and turns that keep you guessing who to trust, they might involve a crime but will NOT be focussed on the police investigation but the victims or perpetrators.

Hi all! I deleted all books by male authors (there were so many of them), but if you see I missed a few, do let me know & I will remove them.


message 8: by Ana (new)

Ana Oh, I also removed duplicates as there were many of them on the list too. Hope you don't mind. Love the list!


message 9: by Semira (new)

Semira Added Mo Hayder's Jack Caffrey novels and the stand-alone books "Tokyo"/"The Devil Of Nanking" and "Hanging Hill" because she writes terrifying crime/thriller novels and got me into the genre.

When you find a book that shouldn't be here, post on the Librarians Group: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/... Name the book, explain how it doesn't fit the list description and what # it is on the list at the time of your posting. Hopefully a librarian can remove it for you. (You must be a member of the group to post but anyone can join)

Removed Bird by Bird and The Help
